Jesus, lover of my soul (new tune)

November 29th, 2011 Categories: singing... 7 comments

I forgot to add this to my post yesterday about the University Conference. Which is probably a good thing, because it was so long as it was!

Anyway, after the group times in the evening I enjoyed singing with the sisters, and one evening we sung “Jesus Lover of My Soul” according to the new tune. I thought I’d post it for you, but hymnal.net, my go-to place for hymns and melodies, only had the original tune.

So I did a search on YouTube and eventually found this :)

1. Jesus, lover of my soul,
Let me to Thy bosom fly,
While the nearer waters roll,
While the tempest still is high:
Hide me, O my Savior, hide,
Till the storm of life is past;
Safe into the haven guide;
O receive my soul at last.

2. Other refuge have I none,
Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
Leave, oh, leave me not alone,
Still support and comfort me.
All my trust on Thee is stayed,
All my help from Thee I bring;
Cover my defenseless head
With the shadow of Thy wing.

3. Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
More than all in Thee I find;
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint,
Heal the sick and lead the blind.
Just and holy is Thy name,
I am all unrighteousness;
Vile and full of sin I am,
Thou art full of truth and grace.

4. Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound;
Make and keep me pure within.
Thou of life the fountain art,
Freely let me take of Thee;
Spring Thou up within my heart,
Rise to all eternity.

    we were just singing this song on this tune tonight at the home meeting! The first time it was not so easy, but then we sang it again and we loved it.

    Somehow on the new tune you kind of love the words and understand them even more… – it’s good to learn to sing new tunes and enjoy the Lord in new ways!
